Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) applauded the U.S. Department of Labor’s $1.5 million grant to Las Vegas’ Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow (FIT) to help those who have been involved in the justice system access job training and employment opportunities.
“The Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow has helped hundreds of Nevadans find meaningful employment and build a better future for themselves and their families. With this grant, FIT will be able to continue this valuable work, especially for formerly incarcerated Nevadans who served their time and are reentering society, who face unique challenges when transitioning to employment. We’ll continue to fight for programs that help break the cycle of recidivism and provide all Nevadans with the opportunity to succeed.”
Administered by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA), the Reentry Project grants serve both juveniles and adults within the criminal justice system by funding programs that help them complete their education and/or return to the workforce.
